Remembering: Anthony Pany’s life on the farm

Wednesday, November 13, 2019 by ED PANY Curator, Atlas Cement Company Memorial Museum in Columns

A few weeks ago, Bob Mentzell, a friend, former outstanding teacher at Northampton High School and current school board member, forwarded this writer a series of photographs showing my father, Anthony Pany, working on the Smith farm in East Allen Township during the Great Depression.

Anthony emigrated to the United States as a youth from Austria. His education in this new country was limited. In order to help his large family, he was hired as a farm hand on the Smith farm.
